    November 22, 2020 - beautiful... unfortunately none available in the US right now or I would have bought some more... a robust Barolo, with plenty of structure to carry the fruit and spice... very very enjoyable right now... figure its in ten year period of peak

    August 20, 2020 - classic old school Barolo... and will benefit from another 10 years in cellar, but great now after about 3 hours in decanter... found G. Borgogno when buying some 1960's Barolo a decade ago, and have been enjoying him since... I'm sure the wine make is different but seems like the style has been retained... trad'l and able to age endlessly

    August 30, 2017 - Brought to Lombardi offline.
    This wine was in such a sweet spot. This showed a lot of typical Barolo characteristics....of course, all well integrated with aging. But the nose had such a great black licorice/allsorts licorice aroma. Just lovely.

    June 15, 2016 - Past peak and somewhat diluted but fairly complex and great finish. Good acidity
